Article source: Arquitectos Anónimos

The seaside around the town centre of VN Gaia (the city where we made this project) is undergoing a violent residential occupation with the ensuing conversion of its nature state. The fragments regardless architecture have piled up in disorderly ‘suburbia’, hidden under a shapeless agglomeration of private houses.

Esmeriz House in Vila Nova, Portugal by Projecto Cosimo

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

Article source: Projecto Cosimo

The concept of a house is usually related to the function of shelter/home but it also includes a socio/cultural exercise of a specific community. This house is definitely that place where we act as urban individuals protected from time. It is a polyvalent space that articulates an administrative area with another one that promotes culture and civilization as if through a path where the main program/scheme is spread (secretary, offices, WC, auditorium), just like a beast with thousand feet snug to the slope.

Lordelo Pharmacy in Vila Real, Portugal by JOSÉ CARLOS CRUZ – ARQUITECTO

Sunday, February 3rd, 2013

Article source: JOSÉ CARLOS CRUZ – ARQUITECTO

The Pharmacy is located in Vila Real, in the centre north of Portugal and is part of a peripheral zone of the city where the environment does not have a consolidated and uniform image. In the absence of external references, it was chosen to create a building with an abstract and neutral character, reinforced by the absence of openings. With oval shape footprint, the two floors are fully aluminum coated corrugated and perforated. The only direct opening to the outside is the main entrance that gives access to the sales area. By changing the interior light and the symbol of pharmacy, the building gains dynamic, allowing the image variation from day to night. The store not only sells medicines but also has its own laboratory for compounding pharmacy.

HOLIDAY HOME IN THE ALGARVE, Portugal by HILBERINKBOSCH architects

Saturday, February 2nd, 2013

Article source: HILBERINKBOSCH architects

In the Algarve, the south of Portugal, the transition from the coast to the hilly midlands is characterized by an ascending landscape. Historical agricultural structures, such as vineyards and orchards form an idyllic setting. We designed a holiday home for a Dutch principal on one of these typical plots with an old citrus- and olive orchard. The main focus point of the design are the life outdoors, the sun, the fantastic view over the ocean and the gathering around family and friends.

Pedras Salgadas Eco-Resort in Portugal by RA Architectural & Design Studio

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

Article source: RA Architectural & Design Studio

The new Eco-resort of Parque de Pedras Salgadas, Portugal, consists of a set of seven small houses in perfect harmony with the surrounding outstanding nature.

Designed in a modular prefabrication system but flexible to adapt to the specific places within the park, these houses result in several different combinations of the same three modules (entrance/bathing – living – sleeping) creating different morphologies and different dialogues with the surrounding nature, wisely occupying the empty spaces between the trunksof large trees and, at the same time, allowing each home to be unique, special and worth visiting.

Three Courtyards House in Benavente, Portugal by Miguel Marcelino Arquitecto

Saturday, December 1st, 2012

Article source: Miguel Marcelino Arquitecto

The plot  is located in the middle of a “montado” landscape, being the best views to the north with a lake and the skyline punctuated by cork oak trees. The house is organized in a compact volume of two floors, complemented by three courtyards all different in size and features. A first large courtyard, enclosed, intimate, situates on the south side, embracing a big existing cork oak. Next to the back entrance there is another smaller patio, for service. The third courtyard works as a key element in the relationship between home and the north side – it’s a slim space with a large horizontal opening that frames the landscape – it has an atmosphere of a “inner space outdoors”, the light is soft, by reflection on the outer wall that receives direct sunlight. This vertical courtyard communicates with a staircase that leads to an open terrace, the last element of the sequence of spaces, patios and atmospheres that go from more introspective and private to more open and outside.
